This industrious woodpecker is part of a three print bird series that I will be releasing soon. I was thinking about releasing them as 8" x 10" screen prints, but does anyone have any other size suggestions? 10" x 13"? 11" x 17"?!
I need your help! Let me know what you think!

Looks great so far! Size wise I'd pick something that has an affordable standard frame size. 8x10, 11x14, 16x20 if you wanna go larger. Makes framing prints you buy a painless process with plenty of options
For sure standard sizes! 8x10 or 9x12 are always nice
really like that would texture on the tree
Thanks for the size ideas folks! I'm still weighing my options, seeing what will be best.
@Doe Eyed any chance you could share what brushes/texture you are using on that tree? Excellent texture and shape work.
@Rogie, for the tree, I used a crappy, crusty paint brush with some black india ink to draw one heavy, straight stroke. I scanned that into Photochop and bumped up the contrast. The woodgrain texture itself was simply drawn with a leaky ball point pen before being scanned. The textures on the bird and string all come from a janky old photocopier. Everything is eventually combined and assembled in Illustrator.
loooooove it dude.
I tend to like 11x14 and 8x10 sizes for art prints...easier to find a spot on the walls! Nice work duder!
